Having the Correct Example (Laodicea - Canon 34)

No Christian shall forsake the martyrs of Christ, and turn to false martyrs, that is, to those of the heretics, or those who formerly were heretics; for they are aliens from God.  Let those, therefore, who go after them, be anathema.

Scripture tells us that we are surrounded by a great cloud of those who died in the faith and in whose faith we can consider as we go onto maturity in Christ (Heb 12:1-3).  To look at heretics and schismatics who are not true witnesses of Christ, we are denying the faith of those who gave their lives for the truth of God's promises.
